If you look at the extent of separation of offensive and defensive skills and contribution in each comparable then Selanne looks very attractive compared to Dionne. Selanne is much closer to Datsyuk the Dionne ever was to Clarke when evaluating the complete game of all.

Point could be made Clarke > Datsyuk > Selanne > Dionne.

Maybe overall but he isn't done yet and defensively Dats is Clarke's equal.

Overall Clarke is rated too high for several reason in the HOH sections but the main one is his 3 Harts (and the over emphasis of them) when it's pretty clear Orr should have won 2 of them (with actual playing games nothing hypothetical) and perhaps even the 3rd one had he not been injured.
